Mobile no of sluts
Instead, the other women were simply foils for each others’ supposed sexual virtue.One woman described her best friend like so:“She just keeps going over there because she wants his attention because she likes him. That to me, if you want to talk about slutty, that to me is whoring yourself out.”For her analysis, Armstrong divided the cohort in two, with wealthier women in one group and the working-class ones in the other.but also by how much debt they carried, how much financial assistance they could expect from their parents, their social networks, and their financial prospects.”But in the process, they began to notice that the women’s attitudes about sex were also influenced by their families’ incomes.On top of asking the students about GPAs and friend groups, the researchers also dug into their beliefs about morality—sometimes through direct questions, but often, simply by being present for a late-night squabble or a bashful confession.“We were there on the floor when these dramas would emerge about slut-bashing,” Armstrong told me.
The researchers interviewed the 53 women on their floor every year for five years—from the time they were freshmen through their first year out of college.
“We saw working class girls walk out of their dorms to visit boys, and the privileged girls would say, ‘why are you wearing that?
’", economic inequality drove many of the differences in the ways the women talked about appropriate sexual behavior.
The rich ones saw it as “trashiness,” or anything that implied an inability to dress and behave like an upper-middle-class person.
One woman, for example, “noted that it was acceptable for women to ‘have a short skirt on’ if ‘they’re being cool’ but ‘if they’re dancing really gross with a short skirt on, then like, oh slut.’”The poorer women, meanwhile, would regard the richer ones as “slutty” for their seeming rudeness and proclivity for traveling in tight-knit herds.
